Outdoor burning prohibited May 1 through Sept. 30

A state-mandated burn ban on all outdoor burning is in effect from May 1 through Sept. 30. 

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division imposes the ban to comply with Federal Clean Air Regulations.

According to the Georgia Forestry Commission, careless burning of debris is the leading cause of wildfires in Georgia.

In the hot months of summer, the ozone in the air can reach unhealthy levels. Outdoor burning is a significant contributor to the pollutants that form ozone, according to the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. 

For more information about the burn ban, see the outdoor Burning Guidelines on the City website. Questions? Call Johns Creek Fire Marshal at 678-512-3363 or email
